  • Comments:

    From the grandfather of the Granada guitars, it offers typically Marin Montero sound - very open, strong and bright with depth and good balance. We obtain excellent Antonio Marins and go to check and collect each and every one.
    Antonio has made only a handful of guitars with ziricote and has been looking for more of it to be able to do others for us.
    Typical feel and sound of a Marin Montero with that extra beauty from the ziricote timber.
